"Great experience make sure you're dedicated."
I had a great experience with SynergisticIT. Fair warning it is hard work, but so are most boot camps or even just schooling and learning in general. They don't lie about that on the up front though I was told from the start the instructors are educated... Read More

"Dynamic Curriculum & Great team"
One of the areas where majority of IT candidates like me have seen stagnation is that we believe that our skills, knowledge and expertise would keep us going! However with changing dynamics of IT industry I came to realise that I would really have to... Read More

"Loved the overall experience and job training here!"
I got my java and AWS training from a full time camp in California. I relocated here two years back after completing my college degree in Oregon. Since the career prospects are better here I thought I would come and try my luck here (I got tired of the... Read More
It’s been six months since I finished my training with them and I am writing this review to help people like me who are stuck with low paying jobs and want their resume attractive enough to be shortlisted by big IT companies. So our first day was spent getting to know our teachers and fellow coders, our teachers made sure that we were comfortable with each other. After studying hard for four days, we would have pair programming on Friday and then we were given assignments to complete during weekend. Unlike my previous camp, we had repeat sessions here and continuous Q and A to help clear all our doubts and that’s why we all built a strong foundation of the language we were learning. They really help develop the co-working environment with group projects which helps in our career also later on. The effectiveness of their training is pretty evident from the fact that I got a job with $95K salary after a month of completing my training. From a person who has done a lot of freelance work and attended more than one bootcamp after completing a CS degree, you can take my word when I say that less is more when it comes to learn coding. So don’t go by labels and do your own research, don’t trust those ‘too good to be true’ ads and figure out your own coding path. Here are some tips I can share from my experience:
•Don’t just focus on learning, build a network there. Talk to your cohort, make friends and work together as a team. This helps you learn faster
•Read up and get as good as you can before joining the camp. You will have to work a lot harder otherwise, especially if you are a beginner
•Don’t procrastinate practicing. Practice every day even if you think you have understood a concept properly, you would be surprised of the results when you sit alone and practice it again
•Workload is massive so take small breaks in between and don’t compare your progress to anyone. Ask questions without hesitation or you won’t learn anything
•When you master a skill, remember that it is a part of the process and you still have a long way to go so don’t let it get to your head
•Try and make your learning fun and don’t make it a stressful situation. You will be following pretty much a same routine for 5-6 months so the only fun you are going to get is via your learning methods
•Take a day off. This is very important because our brains get tired and you won’t be able to think creatively if your brain is exhausted most of the times
•You will feel incapable in the beginning but don’t let that deter you from your path. Nobody told you that it was going to be easy so you will have to be a little patient and put in a lot of hard work
I did not have much hope the last time but my expectations were greatly fulfilled. Just try and be regular with classes and complete your assignments on given deadlines since you won’t get extra time, lastly – just trust the process. They teach a variety of courses from Java, MERN stack, AWS to machine learning and Python and they are very thorough and practical.

"One of the best online boot camp with experienced teachers!"
I dropped out of college and left my part time work to become a full time coder. It was a risky decision but it paid off. May be because I trained at a good place that is SynergisticIT! I know there are so many camps around but not all of them function... Read More

"Coding isn’t easy but the right place makes it worth it!"
Going to SynergisticIT was probably one of the best decisions of my life, and I am saying it based on my personal experience- no filters just the truth! A year ago I moved to San Francisco and I was working for job that paid me at max... Read More
I made some of my best friends here, starting from day one. Even throughout the program, you get to work with someone different every week. With assignments that take two three days to complete, you really become good friends with people around. In campus thing was my favorite but I am now loving the virtual world as well. The staff is wonderful too. They are supportive, knowledgeable and really work with you to clear your doubts. They used to spend hours sometimes to help clear our doubts even though they were out of curriculum.
I still wonder how I was able to learn so much so quickly and became a qualified software developer who could earn double of what he was earning before. Even some of my friends who graduated from college at the same time when I did from boot camp were still looking for jobs and they even had more experience than me. So I guess it is more about the quality of program you are in than the total time you are spending towards something. SynergisticIT teachers focus on fundamentals and help develop soft skills too because they are not coaching you just to make you a programmer but the best one who is competent enough to get hired by top companies.
Compared to other camps
It’s not that I did not look for other camps while deciding, I did. But what I noticed was that many of them aggressively trying to sell you the program and they seemed to care more about the money than other things. With this one, money isn’t something they are after. They will only get you admission if they think you can put in the work and has a dedicated mind because let me tell you, the courses are intense and not at all for weak minded people. They even have flexible payment plan where you can pay part of the fee after you get a job. Plus with lot of other camps, though their course was good, there was no job support either because they did not have many industry clients or because they did not have much knowledge in the field. This is not the problem with SynergisticIT because they have the best client list and they get you hired based on your expectations and skill set – no forced contracts and no relocation.
If you want to be a coder and serious about making a career out of this then join SynergisticIT! The curriculum gives you knowledge you need to impress prospective employers on your skills. Just remember that you also need to put in the work to succeed coz if you won’t then the good curriculum and job support also can’t do anything. Their batch size is small too as compared to other camps so it allows for focused teaching. Just sometimes the assignments become too much to handle and we feel a little cramped but that also teaches you to work under pressure situations.

"Good Hybrid of Boot camp and consultation"
Life is tough as an immigrant in US because market is super competitive and the chances of you getting picked over US candidates are quite slim. Why do I say so? Because I was turned down by almost every company I applied to for my OPT job. I did not... Read More
My resume lacked structure, I wasn’t reaching out to companies the right way to get their attention and most importantly, I lacked the ‘star’ factor!
You need to be really well trained, experienced and extra ordinarily talented to better your chances of getting hired by IT giants in US. Otherwise, it will be really difficult, actually almost impossible, to survive on your own out there.
SynergisticIT helped me in my journey. This is a hybrid of a consultation and a boot camp so there was certain surety about the outcomes when I joined. I knew either I would get trained or placed, both were okay with me. Luckily, I got amazing support with both of these things. There is one thing that I really liked about them – their long list of reliable industry clients and never ending zeal to help candidates until they find a good job. Rest all is relative. Their trainers are professional and experienced so you know you are in good hands.
Yes there are plenty of boot camps out there that are equally or more famous but it is about what you want and not what they are offering (my opinion). I too have heard so many famous names like the tech academy, Digital Crafts, Makers academy, She Codes, Epicodus, Turing and some of them even give money back guarantee if you don’t get placed which is lucrative but you’ve got to weigh the pros and cons and understand what your end goal is.
The benefit of joining a hybrid is you get training and job assistance both at one place – it saves money, time and efforts all of which are quite crucial and important for OPT students.

"Reliable place to start your career in IT"
I am a software engineer who came to US four years ago and happily working at a big firm today (on H-1B visa). But my journey wasn’t easy. I came on F-1 visa and I did not know anyone in US then. So my only source of help was either internet or my communication... Read More
